Short Description: 
How gender impacts pay and other employment related issues.

Many Americans would be surprised to learn that women make less money than men for doing the same jobs.  For those who accept this disparity, a common defense is the argument that men--by the nature of their upbringings--have additional skills that are denied those growing up girls.  However, a 2008 study--referenced in the New York Times and Time magazine-- debunks this contention by illustrating that transgender individuals who were raised male but transition to female on average lose one third of their salary; even when they stay in the exact same job or field.

Busy Week

It was a busy week for sure.  Not only did I host the Bread and Roses show, featuring Della Rae of DonorsResource.org and Janna Mock-Lopez of Goodness Magazine, which was such a treat to pull together, but I also came back the next day to create Saturday's, An Evening of Afrotainment

I should probably take a step back as my week started on Sunday, March 8 at 11am until 7pm while in radio training with Marilynn.  She provided some good tips that I was able to apply in preparation and while on air...I love "this moment of silience was brought to you by ________" fill in the blank that I was able to use during the Friday night interviews.  When the conversation begins to flow like it did I start talking before I've completed the question in my head and I end up having a lapse or what some would call a senior moment, and I'm not a senior.  The other technique I picked up on was shortening my statements, yah right, that will take some time as I'm a bit verbose by nature.  This is one I have to work on when I'm on the Saturday night show especially when back announcing...in due time...
